Eyjafjallajökull is a 2-tile impassable Natural Wonder available in Civilization VI with the Vikings Scenario Pack. Eyjafjallajökull may be found in Tundra regions. Its tiles provides +1 Civ6Culture Culture, +2 Civ6Food Food, and +2 Appeal to adjacent tiles; these bonuses stack for each adjacent wonder tile.

Despite its appearance, Eyjafjallajökull is not considered a Mountain in-game.

In Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, discovering Eyjafjallajökull grants +1 Era Score, or +3 Score if the player is the first to do so.

In Civilization VI: Gathering Storm, Eyjafjallajökull is considered a Volcano and can thus erupt, damaging and providing yields to nearby tiles.

Natural Wonder Eyjafjallajökull bonuses (Civ6)

An illustration of Eyjafjallajökull's bonuses

Each Eyjafjallajökull tile provides +1 Civ6Culture Culture and +2 Civ6Food Food to adjacent non-wonder tiles (see diagram). However, as with all impassable wonders, the individual wonder tiles of Eyjafjallajökull offer no benefits, and cannot be developed or improved. Eyjafjallajökull is usually most effective when it is near the outskirts of a city (or even slightly beyond its borders), since the wonder tiles themselves are functionally dead space. If a city is strategically placed in this fashion, it receives the adjacency benefits of the wonder without sacrificing valuable space.

Note that the wonder tiles can be incorporated into National Parks - if a player wishes to found a Park, then it may be more efficient to place the city nearer the wonder.

Civilopedia entryEdit

Eyjafjallajökull is the name for both an Icelandic volcano and the ice cap plugging its caldera. Though the volcano has remained active for over a millennia, it was little known outside of Iceland until a minor eruption in 2010. Its subsequent ash cloud halted air traffic in Europe for nearly a week and spawned thousands of hours of breathless news reports. Eyjafjallajökull's eruptions have traditionally predicted even larger eruptions of the nearby Katla, a far more active subglacial volcano—much to the chagrin of European air traffic controllers.

TriviaEdit

  • Along with Lysefjord and Giant's Causeway Eyjafjallajökull was the first natural wonder to be added to Civilization VI in an expansion.
  • The name "Eyjafjallajökull" is an Icelandic compound word that roughly translates as "island mountain glacier". Despite this, Eyjafjallajökull is not considered a mountain in-game.
